The water temp had dropped to anywhere between 44 to 40, depending on where you were. Saw as low as 37 in Bystrom Bay. The temp we saw the most was 41.  It’s cold!

Swim 9 am this morning.  No idea on temp but Major Shrinkage.  Coolimoolio! keep on rocken!   T  

48.6 degrees in Big Bay this morning. I heard today that a 33-7/8" walleye was caught and kept in Pike Bay yesterday! That is a true fish of a life time! Cliff

Water temps may be be 40 something on surface but four feet down at 3:30 PM during my annual Docks Done Dip it was as cold as normal for a clear rusty slushy. Major Shrinkage oh boy! Buuuuur

My cabin is very close to where your boat is in that pic.  It was 40 around there last weekend. Headed up again Thursday morning.

Down to 38 in Wake Em Up Narrows this afternoon...when we pulled the plug early in favor of sanity.  Did manage a 27.75”er this morning among a couple of others for our Herculean efforts. ha

Anyone able to share the latest water temps?  Heading up in 10 days for annual trip.  Looks like warm this week then a bit cooler by this weekend.  Hopefully water temps are starting to head down a bit as well.

I never turned on my sonar, but the water felt great every day that I jumped into the water. My guess is that it was in the mid-70s. Someone else surely has an accurate reading!

A few days ago it was in fact like 75 degrees most places on west end.

Well....I had no shrinkage and it didn't feel like a warm bath, so my senses were correct!

Hello Everyone, The Walleye opener is just a few days away.

I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring and updates on Smallies getting shallow...

In Black Bay I think it's called wading, not swimming 😀

      I think 3500 lbs is too much.  Trailer your boat and head to a large open parking lot to practice accelerating, coming to a complete stop, making turns, and backing up. So if you are perfect in it then you should trailer it yourself otherwise there are some hauling company for boat. The more you practice handling your vehicle with your boat in tow, the more comfortable you will feel on the open road.

      On the south end...  Some good walleye fishing this week.  As many summer weeks, it was helpful to be versatile.  On the big lake, sometimes you have to play the wind, meaning, you have to be flexible where you fish.   The fish were there and some great catches this week.  Most fishing in 25-33 feet.  Some are still jigging.  Frozen shiners and leeches were both good this week.  With water temps in the mid to upper 60's, leeches and crawlers will heat up.   Spinners (otherwise called harnesses) with minnows, leeches or crawlers were all effective this week.  It is good to mix up colors and bait until you find the right mix.  Gold, glow, pink, orange, chartreuse or a combo of them are good colors in stained water.  More and more anglers trolling crankbaits with success.  Some have been trolling cranks since the opener but it seems most anglers wait till the water warms.  A great method to cover water and find cooperative fish.   On the Rainy River...   Some good summer fishing reports from the river.  Walleyes being caught jigging, pulling spinners and trolling crankbaits.  Current breaks and holes holding most fish.   Smallmouth bass in rocky areas, current breaks, bridge embankments and weed edges.  Lots of bass in the river.  Crankbaits, spinnerbaits and tube jigs are good lures to start with.   Pike are adjacent to weedlines, in slack water areas and in bays.  Working shorelines whether trolling or casting will normally produce nice fish. Sturgeon anglers, mark your calendars, sturgeon season opens again July 1st.   Up at the NW Angle...  Walleye fishing continues to be strong up at the Angle.  Fish coming from literally 5-33' of water.  Not every walleye is keying on the same food sources.  With structure, rocks, and mud, lots of variety at the Angle.  Jigging, spinners and cranks all producing.  Muskie season opens Saturday, June 19th.  Lots of nice fish already caught unintentionally as these predators like to eat.  Muskie anglers were forced to fish MN waters last year with the border closure were happily surprised with the size and quantity of fish on the MN side.  This year should be good. Pike hanging out in weedy bays.  Smallmouth relating to rocky points and reefs. With the Canada border still closed, there are many ways to get up to the Angle.   1.  The LOW Passenger Service, charter boat shuttle service from the south end, is open and running.  2.  If you have the right boat and expertise, boating across is an option.  3.  And finally, Lake Country Air flying service, a float plane service out of Baudette and other locations.

      Does anyone have someone to recommend for mowing paths/lawn on an island (Frazer\Smarts Bay)?   I only have a DR Brush Mower system I am using right now (been through 2 old hand me down mowers (I'd love to get rid off, one is a John Deere).   Thanks for any insight   Andy
